Recently I was just viewing my blog visitor map and while viewing the Real time Overview of the visitor I saw the below glitch in Maps. London is shown within United States.
Proud Samsung owners of Galaxy S4 can download near final build of the company’s Android 4.3 distribution. Sammobile on Sunday released an Android 4.3 build that’s designed to run on the Galaxy S4 and user can download the build from Sammobile website. However it’s not clear whether it’s safe to download and will it cause any trouble for those who download’s it (Install at your own risk).
Rumors are already out that Android 4.3 will be available for Galaxy S4 users in a couple of week. So those who are eager to get Android 4.3 can refer to Sammobile site and those who wants to play safe can officially wait for Samsung updates.
Google recently has been rolling out a new look to its tab page and even to its Google default search screen i.e. adding the search bar, removing black bar that once used to appear on the top of the screen and moving access to apps. Apps can be accessed through clicking the nine-box grid icon on the left of the website.
You can access further apps by clicking on the More button but user don’t have access to which apps should appear in the default nine. But now with the new Chrome extension, “App Launcher Customizer for Google”, user can select its apps to be appeared the grid.
According to the developer, “it allows you to customize the app launcher and add more then 170 Google shortcuts. And it is not limited to these 170 Google shortcuts; the extension also allows you to create custom shortcuts to every website you want”.
After installation user can select Tools—>Extensions and click on the add on you installed and it will open the control panel of the extension.
The control panel is divided in to two panes, right one displays the apps currently in the launcher and the left one shows the list of options you have.
Hope it will be useful for all. Personally I finding it interesting and it has lots of services which you can make it default. So explore and let me know your feedback.
